for reason of competition. his competitor's wife was local phone operator. when someone very agrieved called, picked up the phone, ask the operator, connect me with the under taker guess who got all the business? he tried to invent his way out of the problem, a many competition problem. but also the volume of phone calls was getting too high for purely manual call processing. it just wasn't going to scale. and so you started getting abused even very early on. this is a pen register, real of paper tape with associated gadget tri. was back in the 1920s a pen register is a device recording what phones are, what phone numbers a particular phone is dialing. again this is a creature of the dial age, back when you're dealing only with manual operators, you asked the operator, who just called me. by the 1920s when most calls were dialed you already needed a mechanical gadget to keep track of who was calling whom. and you need it because there was already abuse going on by the 1920's. we also saw the start of data communications. here's a picture of teletype. this one is vintage 1963 but goes back to
